Manchester United fans have been given a huge boost with news that the Glazer family are set to make a U-turn on their long-held stance of not selling the club.
The news comes as the Red Devils are in the midst of a takeover race, with a number of potential buyers vying for the chance to take control of the club.
The Glazers have been in charge of United since 2005, but it appears they are now ready to listen to offers for the club.
The news has been welcomed by United fans, who have long been calling for the Glazers to sell up and allow new owners to take the club forward.
The takeover race is now hotting up, with a number of potential buyers in the frame.
One of the frontrunners is American billionaire Michael Dell, who is reportedly keen to invest in the club.
Another potential buyer is Japanese businessman Takashi Kamada, who is said to be keen to invest in the club and bring in a new era of success.
Meanwhile, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also said to be excited about the prospect of new owners coming in.
The Norwegian is reportedly keen to see the club move forward and is hopeful that new owners will bring in the necessary funds to help the club compete at the highest level.
Solskjaer is also said to be excited about the prospect of competing in the Europa League next season.
The Red Devils are currently in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League, which would secure them a place in the competition.
The Europa League is a competition that United have not competed in since the 2016/17 season, and Solskjaer is said to be keen to test his side against some of Europe’s top teams.
The competition could also provide a platform for United to showcase their young talent, with the likes of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial all likely to feature.
The news of the Glazers’ U-turn has been welcomed by United fans, who are now eagerly awaiting the outcome of the takeover race.
Whichever buyer is successful, it is sure to be an exciting time for the club and its supporters.
